Red carpets and paparazzi camera flashing, any AJMAn was sure to feel like a star! After the unfavorable weather condition that forced the event to be moved to a later date, SPOTLIGHT, AJMA’s First General Assembly was finally kicked off last Wednesday, July 25 at the Covered Courts. The event warmly welcomed all AJMAns, giving them a superstar treatment. What better way to start the program than to hear the inspiring words of AJMA President Queen Alandy Dy (IV- BS MIS) and Executive Vice President Enrique Limon (IV- BS MGT). And of course, thanks to the hosts Julo de Guzman (IV- AB Meco), Gab Perez (III- AB Meco) and Christel Boncan (IV- AB Comm), the whole venue was packed with thrill and energy.

Dead air? No way! Not with breathtaking performances from the AJMA Idol contestants Brian Sy (I- BS ComTech), Hector Yason (II- BS ComTech), Carmina Mangalindan (I- BS Mgt) and Kay Abalos (I- BS Mgt). The amazing dance moves from our very own AJMA dancers even pumped up the excitement more. AJMAns were kept on their toes with the Get Spotted Rampa where they got to strut their stuff, and the What Would You Do to Get a Havaianas contest where the wackiest winner got a pair, absolutely free!

Things didn’t just end here, we ended it with a bang! The atmosphere was turned up to a whole new level to the beat of the songs of Sandwich and Kamikazee.

“The GA turned out well. Even if the bands were late, everyone still had a good time” says Ge Perez (II- BS Mgt). Indeed, who would find it hard to forgive the bounce of Jay Contreras’ curly hair, and Raimund Marasigan’s… sexy body? You get the point.

Quoting from Stella Segundo (III-BS Mgt), “SPOTLIGHT: AJMA’s first general assembly was a huge success! I couldn’t imagine a better way to start off the AJMA year. It’s the best way to gather every AJMAn to have fun and get hyped up. This is just the start of an exciting year for us.”

Of course, come closing time, everyone wanted a little something to remember the day by. Not only did AJMA give away free HSBC pens, Krispy Kreme donuts, ice cream, turon, gulaman, and C2 drinks, after the event, they also gave away Azta Salon coupons and Italianni’s gift certificates! True enough, with the end of the first GA begins another exciting year for AJMA. There are new journeys to travel, new challenges to face, and new opportunities to make things happen!
